Sony’s PlayStation VR is without a doubt one of Sony’s best ways to show off the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro. With the headset debuting almost a year ago, the headset does have a few updates and changes that it may need to make over a period of time.
In fact, Sony has actually confirmed that a new PlayStation VR headset is in the works bearing a new model number CUH-ZVR2. Sony confirms that they have updated the processing unit to now support HDR pass through that would now allow users to pass HDR through the device when the PSVR is off so that players could enjoy their HDR gaming on their TVs.
Alongside that, players would now be able to enjoy a more streamlined PSVR experience since the stereo headphone cables can now be integrated into the PlayStation VR unit itself.
For players who would be looking to trade-in their PlayStation VR headset, players won’t be able to use their old cables with the new PlayStation VR headset.
As of availability, the headset hasn’t received a confirmed release date for North American users. However, players would now be able to pick one up one they share the launch details in the upcoming months.
Personally, I do think that this isn’t a necessary upgrade for many PlayStation 4 gamers. However, players who were already intending to pick one up for themselves, I think its worth waiting for if you own an HDR TV. Just to remind the players thinking to try out VR for themselves, Sony’s PlayStation VR is the most inexpensive way to get into VR with the console and headset bundle costing in at $699, which is just the price of the Vive or Oculus headset alone.
